3 Reliable Used Cars That Are Bargains

Ford, Kia and Cadillac make affordable alternatives to popular vehicles on the used-car market.

We worked with the experts at Edmunds to identify used cars that are attractively valued and earn high marks for reliability. One trick is foregoing popular but pricey Japanese models in favor of American and Korean brands. Here are three used cars to consider.

Ford Escape

It’s a good alternative to the Honda CR-V at a fraction of the cost on the used-car market. Use the money you save to upgrade to an Escape with a fancy “Titanium” trim package that includes power leather seats for both driver and passenger.

Kia Sedona

Families in the market for a used vehicle should check out the Sedona. The Korean minivan costs thousands less used than its Japanese rivals, the Honda Odyssey or the Toyota Sienna. A 2015 redesign of the Sedona has been well-received.

Cadillac CTS

Looking to get behind the wheel of a luxury vehicle for less? Consider a used Cadillac. Die-hard driving enthusiasts swear by the BMW 3 Series, but the CTS has surprisingly sharp handling and quick acceleration. It looks luxurious, too.
